Chapter 1742: You are too much.
“Hua Jin, don’t be sad… Things will get better!”
Just as she finished saying that—
She saw the idol breaking into a wicked grin.
“Ha ha! You fell for it; didn’t you?”
He pointed at her and teased as he saw her hurt expression. “You are so entertaining! I just cracked a joke and you took it for real! You’re truly gullible!”
Yun Shishi turned pale from fright. She was so furious that she started laughing. “You lied to me earlier?!”
“What do you mean that I lied?” He felt wronged. “I was just too bored, so I joked around with you. I didn’t know you’d take it for real! It’s so hilarious!”
The woman was speechless from anger, and her expression had turned livid by then.
He carefully observed the look on her face. Seeing that she was genuinely furious, he began to feel flustered.
He bit his lower lip and pulled on her sleeve pitifully and helplessly, just like a child who had done something wrong. He pulled a long face and said, “Alright! I was wrong; I won’t joke around with you anymore. My earlier words were meant to fool you. Don’t take it for real, okay? Knowing that my good looks are an advantage here, I decided to make use of them fully by joining the industry. Apart from acting, there’s nowhere else I can go.”
“I’m such an idiot. I can’t believe I took your b*llsh*t for real! Do you know that I truly believed your story and felt sorry for you earlier?! I can’t believe you were just lying to me!”
Exceptionally angry, the actress demanded, “Why did you lie to me?”
“That’s because I know that you’re truly kind. If you take pity on me, you’ll treat me well,” answered the idol as he smiled.
What he received in response was an ice-cold slap, alas.
She did not use much strength, but it was an unconscious action brought by all the rage and embarrassment she felt.
The idol held his slightly sore cheek as he gaped at her; his eyes were then filled with helplessness and loss.
“Don’t call me by my first name! Who would take someone’s sympathy as a joke? You are too much!”
She was still unable to get a hold of her emotions as she scoffed. “You dare make use of someone’s sympathy to earn their pity? You take your jokes too far!”
Hua Jin grew increasingly helpless as he looked at her uneasily. He tried to make a grab for her sleeve. “I… I’m sorry! I’m in the wrong; I won’t kid around with you anymore!”
She brushed his hand aside harshly and responded coldly, “Stop pestering me! I’m going to film my scene.”
With that, the woman got up and threw the script at his chest as she turned to leave.
The man looked at her retreating back forlornly and bit his lower lip, looking as if he would cry at any minute.
By the time the actress and Lin Zhi’s joint scene was done, it was already two in the morning.
When she was leaving the set, the woman spotted the idol still sitting in the same spot as he looked at her with a face full of helplessness.
Even though he wanted to approach her and talk to her, he did not dare to do so.
She did not spare him another glance and left without a word to head home!
Hua Jin sat at where he was, feeling dumbfounded. He failed to regain his senses even after a moment.
‘You dare make use of someone’s sympathy to earn their pity? You take your jokes too far!’
Those angry words the woman uttered earlier rang in his ears.
He caressed his cheek and bit his lower lip. It seemed that he was about to cry.
Perhaps using sympathy as a way to get closer to someone one liked was indeed rather childish.
Maybe he was just stupid!
